".....it (Port Fairy) is the best value golf in the world - without question."  Golf Australia

Men: 463 metre, Par 5; 
Women: 422 metre, Par 5

A good length par 5 dogleg running left to right, a well positioned drive over the right bunker will give the big hitters a chance to go for the green in two.

 

Men: 326 metre, Par 4; 
Women: 224 metre, Par 4

Lovely undulating par 4 over the hill to an elevated, fast green; bunkers right front of green and left back

Men: 326 metre, Par 4;
Women: 224 metre, Par 4

Lovely undulating par 4 over the hill to an elevated, fast green; bunkers right front of green and left back

Men: 167 metre, Par 3;
Women: 144 metre, Par 3

Good to mid-range, testing, well bunkered par three.

If you miss it to the right the ball should feed back onto the green

Men:  448 metre, Par 5;
Women: 404 metre, Par 5

A first class par five with a beautiful undulating fairway, wide enough to make it strategically interesting.

There are bunkers on both sides of the fairway, then sweeping right uphill to a perfectly placed fast sloping green

Men: 327 metre, Par 4;
Women:  269 metre, Par 4

Danger to the right off this tee characterised by the heavily banked dune so keep to the left. The second shot is to a relatively small green with very subtle slopes 

Note: view over Clubhouse to Belfast Lough on right.

 

Men: 369 metre, Par 4;
Women:  322 metre, Par 4

The most difficult hole on the front nine.

A medium length par four dogleg left to an elevated green.  Make sure your approach shot isn't short or a tough chipshot is waiting. 

Note: Great views of the Belfast Lough and birdlife.

 

Men:  122 metre, Par 3;
Women: 120 metre, Par 3

Downhill par three with a devilishly fast steep green surrounded by deep bunkers.
Wind strength and direction can make this hole a significantly daunting prospect.

 

Men:  355 metre, Par 4;
Women: 346 metre, Par 4

This is a very good par four moving from left to right back to the Clubhouse.

Bunkers to the right of the fairway and left and right of the green add interest and a degree of difficulty to the hole.


PORT FAIRY GOLF LINKS

Golf at Port Fairy is typical of the great Scottish courses, such as St Andrews, Troon and Carnoustie. Golfers who have never had the experience of playing these courses should take the opportunity to visit the district for a unique experience. Wind is a factor when you play golf at Port Fairy, and the choice of club varies from day to day. For example a 111 metre par 3 can be played on one day with a wedge and on another with a 4 iron. Generally however tees and greens have a measure of wind protection to keep the game comfortable.
